SI Milford Haven were in the Milford Mercury for their Cleddau Bridge demonstration to mark International Women’s Day

THE feeling of sisterhood was strong on Saturday, as women from across the county joined hands to mark International Women’s Day.

More than 100 people of all ages and genders proudly spanned the Cleddau Bridge, undeterred by the heavy rain and strong winds.

The event saw members of Soroptimist International Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire Women’s Festival and the SGI Buddhist Group in Pembrokeshire unite, 100 years on from when women first got the vote in the UK.

They were joined by family, friends, and even the mayors of Milford Haven and Neyland, Cllrs Colin Sharp and Simon Hancock.

Joint president of Soroptimist Milford Haven, Trisha Campodonic, said she was delighted with the turn-out.

“It went very well, especially considering the horrible weather,” she said.

“We had at least 100 people there which was fantastic, lots of people of all ages, and having Samba Doc band there really made the event feel upbeat.
